A stripper appears and invites Rex to go to a private room. Rex thinks Gigi's sending him another sign. Natalie convinces him otherwise and tries to get Rex to leave. He tells Natalie to go back to the hotel. He's going to stay for one drink. Natalie hopes he finds what he's looking for.

Cutter finds Aubrey packing in their motel room. She wants to get away from him and resents Cutter asking her to go after Rex. As Aubrey walks toward the door, Cutter begs, "Please don't leave me, Christine." Cutter hasn't called her that in a longtime. Christine Karr, the girl he fell in love with… before they turned her into Aubrey Wentworth. They remember how in love they were back then. Until Cutter told her about his past and he found out about hers. She was in debt and agreeing to pose as his sister was her biggest mistake. Cutter wanted her to have everything she never had growing up, so he convinced her to take job after job. He never thought she'd fall for a mark. She tries to leave again. Cutter begs her to stay. She stays, only because she has nowhere else to go.

At the Manning Estate, Starr tells Tea, Dani and Jack that the man before them is their Uncle Victor Lord Jr. Victor claims he's the real Todd. The other guy's the fake. Starr objects and demands, "Stop!" Starr pleads with Tea to call Viki for proof. Tea calls Viki then hangs up. Viki confirmed what Starr said. Dani flips out on Victor. Tea explains that he was brainwashed. It wasn't Victor's fault. "I believed I was Todd Manning," Victor says. Jack will always think of Victor as his father. Victor turns to Dani. She had a hard time accepting him, now she doesn't have to. Dani cries. Even though he's not her father, she's still his daughter. Victor looks at Starr. Is she done with him? He feels like she's his daughter. Everything he did was because he loved her. How can't that be real? "You're not my father," Starr cries. "But I'll always love you." Victor holds Starr close. Jack and Dani huddle around them. Victor asks to talk to Tea alone. The kids leave. Tea makes it clear that she still loves him.

Todd sees a photo of Blair and Victor and says, "I should've been here for this, but he was. I lost eight years with my kids because of that bastard." How could Blair not know? He fought to get back to Blair. She should've never stopped trying to get back to him. Todd blames Blair for everything. Blair assures Todd he'll get his life back. It won't make up for the memories Victor has. Todd wants to kill his brother and refuses to let it go. Blair grabs a gun and tries using reverse psychology.
